Khyreya's campaign has fully funded! 🎉 A Beam employee is now supporting her on her journey through training and into work as a nursery assistant.
But other Beam members need your help. Support the greatest number of homeless people to train up and get into work by giving monthly.
Some brief updates from me. I'm making good progress with my course and should be due to complete it before the end of this year. In the meantime, I managed to find a part time job working as a carer. I've used the income to help pay off my rent arrears and my accommodation is now secure - which I'm so relieved about!
I'm also registering with the council to become a childminder. After I've registered, and once I've completed my qualification, I'll be able to do this work full-time. As you can see, I'm super busy at the moment, but I'll let you know how I get on.
My course is going really well and I am doing my best to achieve my goal!
Thanks for the support and I'll keep you updated.

Too often homeless people are forced to lie out of sheer desperation. We think it's better when relationships are built on trust and honesty. Beam verifies each member in 4 ways:
1. Referral: every member of Beam is referred by a registered homelessness charity or local authority.
2. Interviews: before their campaign launches, each member is interviewed twice by a Beam Member Manager.
3. References: we take references on each member from the charity who refers them and someone in a position of responsibility.
4. Profile: we take great care to verify information in a member's story is true.
It's your money.
We work hard to ensure that you can give confidently.
A caseworker or "Member Manager" is an employee of Beam who helps those referred to Beam to plan a crowdfunding campaign and supports them through training and into work.
All Member Managers are trained professionals who specialise in supporting vulnerable adults by focusing on their strengths and abilities.
